   Sam Querrey is already out of the Miami Open.
   One day after losing in the first round of doubles, the 29th-seeded Querrey fell to Adrian Mannarino of France, 6-7 (5), 6-2, 6-4 on Saturday in the second round of singles.
   Querrey, a 28-year-old San Francisco native living in the Los Angeles suburb of Santa Monica, received a first-round bye. He fell to 0-2 lifetime against Mannarino, a 27-year-old left-hander from France.
   Steve Johnson of Redondo Beach in the Los Angeles area and Querrey lost to Spanish left-handers Feliciano Lopez and Marc Lopez (no relation) 3-6, 6-3, 10-6 in the first round.
   It was the third consecutive first-round loss for Johnson and Querrey since a runner-up showing in Memphis.
   The Lopez pair reached the semifinals of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells last week.  
   Fourth-seeded Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan, trying to win their third straight Miami Open doubles title and fifth overall, beat Inigo Cervantes and David Ferrer of Spain 6-3, 7-5 in the opening round.
   The Bryans, 37-year-old ex-Stanford All-Americans, will play Roberto Bautista-Agut of Spain and Viktor Troicki of Serbia in the second round.
